2 Year Warranty On All New Items



The Altair MG32 Mini Guide Scope is a small "set and forget" high quality optical tube, which comes with the sensitive GPCAMv2 AR0130 Mono Camera, plus the GPCAM Clamp.

It's very small, very compact, and very light - ideal for portable wide field imaging. You can mount it on just about any telescope dovetail bar with the GPCAM Clamp.

Benefits:

Small and accurate: This is the perfect guider for your iOptron SmartEQ PRO, SkyGuider, Star-Adventurer or other small mount. It delivers good accuracy with refractors up to 500mm aperture. Weight is about 350 grams and length is 165mm.

Perfect for polar alignment with SharpCap PRO and Altair GPCAM: If you order an Altair GPCAM with your MG32, you get a free 1 year SharpCap PRO software license with the camera, so you can polar align your telescope or camera lens with extreme accuracy out of the box in minutes. Your MG32 doesn't even need to be perfectly aligned with your optical tube. You can just point the finder scope within 5 degrees of the north or south celestial poleand the software will do the rest. This alone will revolutionise your imaging.

Zero flex, and your guide camera will stay in perfect focus forever: The camera is threaded into the optical housing, so you don't need to worry about differential flex. The finder scope front lens is rotated to focus, then the locking ring is tightened up. You are now focused forever.

Fits most existing finder scope rings: The tube diameter (white part) is 36mm enabling and 85mm long enabling it to be used with most finder scope rings. The full length is 165mm with dewshield retracted, 185mm with dewshield fully extended.
